Hi all,
I'm writing an http proxy server in Erlang, and I'm using the http module.

First of all, I would highlight that the Erlang/OTP documentation seems to miss 
the needed infos on http module, it reports httpd, ftp, etc. but hot http.

Secondly, I'm using the function http:request_sync to retrieve a web document 
but sometimes it fails reporting the "aborted_request" error. Does anyone know 
what does it mean?

Third, Are there any problems in using the http module in a multi-processes 

Thank you for your help.
